HI... LA PETITE CAFE IS AN EXCELLENT AFFORDABLE FRENCH RESTUARANT IN SANTA MONICA ,CAlif. I HAD THE UNUSUAL AND HARD TO FIND 'LOBSTER BISQUE' WHICH HAD NO CREAM , IT WAS FAVORABLE AND TASTY. MY WIFE HAD A FRESH MUSHROOM & TOMATO SALAD THAT WAS NICELY CHILLED. THE MAIN COURSE - I HAD 1/2 MASCOVY DUCK IN A HONEY GINGER SAUCE THAT WAS FANASTIC. THE DUCK WAS NOT GREASY AND IT WAS JUICY AND SUCCULENT. MY WIFE HAD THE SAND DABS WHICH WERE PLENTIFUL AND DELICIOUS.WE EACH HAD A CHOICE OF POTATO AND THE DINER WAS SERVED WITH FRESH VEGATABLES. DESSERT WE SHARED A WARM PECAN TART THAT JUST 'TOPPED' OFF THE DINNER WITH COLUMBIAN COFFEE. ALL IN ALL, THE BILL WAS 58$, A MEAL WELL WORTHWHILE. THE RESTUARANT IS FAMILY OWNED AND SERVED BY THE CHILDREN WHO TRY HARD TO PLEASE EACH CUSTOMER. THE WINE LIST IS SUFFICIENT AND WINES ARE AT ALL PRICES. WE EACH A GLASS OF SAVIGNON BLANC THAT WAS 4.50$$ . I GIVE THIS CAFE A 8 OUT OF 10 STARS. IT ISNT FANCY BUT THE FOOD IS TERRIFIC. IHOPE YOU AL LENJOY IT. /ED '' A GOOD CHEF IS THE PECULIAR GIFT OF THE GODS. THEY MUST BE A PERFECT CREATURE FROM THE BRAIN TO THE PALATE,FROM THE PALATE TO THE FINGER'S END.''
Taix French Restaurant Los Angeles, CA
taix- is a very interesting restuarant and well worth a visit to see if you would like it. the wine list is one of the better and least expensive in los angeles with hundreds of choices.. the restuarant is very close to dodger stadium. the food menu is varied but mostly french. please dont let the french identifcation discourage you from going. I really believe that if you live close enough to go you will thanks me. I had the delicious roasted crispy duck (la orange) with a tasty orange sauce. duck is usually greasey but this was not, just mention that request to the waiter if you want to. my wifee michele had a delicious veal dish with fresh cooked vegatables. we ordered a delicious california merlot wine and shared a dessert of chocolate crepes . dinner was under 65 $$ and you can certainly get away for less with no problem. there is valet parking and reservations should always be made and canxelled if you cant make it. enjoy yourself and please browse over the great wine list for terrific prices and choices. I hope your meal & evening is pleasant one
